Wow, huge huge movement in the daily tracker, foreshadowed by the approval rating growing.  What are Republicans going to be able to cling to if Gallup has a 6 point lead.

50 percent in the head to head, 51% approval today.  All we need is for Rasmussen to move when they recalculate party shares in October and demoralization will be complete.

Here, I'll read the conservative responses so you don't have to.  If this doesn't bring a smile to your day, I don't know what will.  This is making my Yom Kippur fast go much easier :)

We have denial:

"Funny, I haven’t been polled once this year!"

"This is crap."

" still has Romney up 7.8%"

"They are doctoring these polls, to make it seem that Obama is more popular than he really is.

"And, they want to demoralize Republicans by claiming the Romney campaign is imploding."

We have grudging acceptance:

"Accuracy as in they had Obama winning bigger than he did but they were still accurate in that Obama won. I don’t really care if they’re off a few points the fact is all these polls keep showing Obama ahead. And how exactly with the price of gas, and food, and the cost of debt, and the bad employment numbers along with the fact that NOBODY really likes his Obamacare plan does this bastard get 50 to 51 percent job approval. Romney is not running an effective campaign if this is the case. Is he afraid to be tough?

"This is a disaster."

"Really? Romney is getting killed. This is looking like 2008 all over again. The 'establishment' puts up a lousy candidate and we are left on the outside. Down ballot races are being affected too. Face facts we are in trouble."

And yes, someone says it!

"There is only one poll that counts. And it takes place in November. Just ask Jimmy Carter."

Couldn't ask for more. if you want the laughs.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
